Visit the southern-most point of the Tierra del Fuego archipelago of Chile. It is very common for large boats and ships to round Cape Horn to get to the other side of the continent although this was largely reduced with the creation of the Panama canal in 1914. Climb to the peak of the Cape Horn mountain or visit the famous lighthouse that has led countless ships on their excursion around the world. Additionally, there's an abundance of marine life in this region including South American sea lions, black-browed albatross, rockhopper penguins, humpback whales, and even kelp forests! Contact our travel experts to start planning your ideal trip to Cape Horn today!

Cape Horn & Tierra del Fuego Travel Guide

Best Cape Horn Small Ship Cruise Lines for 2024-2025
  • Ponant - has cruises that enter Chilean Patagonia, head for the Tierra del Fuego archipelago and its iconic Cape HornIf weather conditions allow, guests can disembark at Cape Horn and discover its albatross sculpture created by the Chilean artist José Balcells Eyquem. For your comfort, your cruise package includes an overnight in Buenos Aires the day before embarkation and the flights to/from Ushuaia before boarding Le Boreal and Le Lyrial
  • Lindblad Expeditions - optimize your Patagonia experience with a land and sea expedition on the National Geographic Resolution and National Geographic Endurance that lets you view the legendary 425-meter high Cape Horn off your list. You can join any naturalist who shares your interests. Plus, get top shots with the help of a National Geographic photographer, who lingers ashore through the golden hour of light.
  • Antarctica 21 - operates Fly & Cruise Expeditions to Antarctica and Sea Voyages to Cape Horn, the Falkland Islands, South Georgia & Antarctica. Trips are boutique wilderness adventures taking you to Antarctica and beyond while enjoying small ship experiences aboard Magellan Explorer and Ocean Nova Air Cruises that allow time to explore remote destinations.
  • Quark Expeditions -  sail to the southern tip of the Tierra del Fuego archipelago. There are no direct flights to Cape Horn or the Tierra del Fuego archipelago. Book a sea voyage on a ship like the 199-guest Ultramarine set to deliver the ultimate polar expedition experience to this remote location.
  • Hurtigruten - After a night in Santiago, board the expedition ship MS Fram in Punta Arenas. Then sail south through the narrow Canal Gabriel and into the Garibaldi fjord. If the weather cooperates, you may land on Cape Horn, a region known for rough seas.
  • Aurora Expeditions - has several expeditions that set off from the small Chilean town of Puerto Williams, venturing out into the open Drake Passage. The body of water between Cape Horn and the Southern Ocean can be rough, but very few people can say they have traveled these historic waters. Cruise comfortably across the passage with Sylvia Earle.
